Hints, Tips & Tricks - Agarose

By Bioline 23 February 2017

Agarose gel electrophoresis is a common molecular biology technique used to separate DNA or RNA molecules by size. This is achieved by denaturing and applying a negative charge to our nucleic acid sample. The samples are then run through an agarose matrix with an electric field (Electrophoresis). Shorter molecules move faster and thus migrate further and in the gel over a given time period. Many factors are involved with regards to the final visualization step and achieving high resolution of the resulting bands on the agarose gel.

Tips to help improve resolution include: - Running the gel at a lower voltage for a longer period of time - Using a wider/thinner gel comb - Loading less DNA into each well

MangoTaq comes with a coloured reaction buffer that contains red and orange dyes, which separate during electrophoresis and provide quick reference points for monitoring the mobility of the DNA samples in the gel.

Manvir Tiwana, Business Development Manager - Bio

Manvir Tiwana

"I am a Business Development Manager for Bioline, responsible for academic and industrial accounts in London, Oxford, Cardiff and Swansea. It’s delightful to experience first-hand in meetings the differing dynamics the regions and institutions have; whilst some will focus on the technical aspects of our specific product lines and others will focus on what we offer in Custom Solutions

I have been with Bioline for almost five years and it has been great to see the company grow in so many ways. To have been a part of so many product launches and knowing that it has been my friends in R&D responsible for the quality, makes me that much more passionate and proud of being a part of the team here. Receiving great feedback from my customers only amplifies this passion further. There is a great family feel here and living close to the office means I get enjoy coming in and catching up with good friends.

In my spare time, I am Chairman and loosehead prop for Ickenham Rugby Club. Responsible for 60 players and have a great committee to handle the fixtures, fitness, finances, marketing and social aspects of the club. The day after a game, I am usually recovering with some knitting projects."
